The big decision
 
should I buy this? [url=http://www.silverlineautomotive.com/detail-2006-subaru-impreza_wrx_sti-used-6098245.html]2006 Used Subaru Impreza WRX STI at Silverline Automotive Inc. in PORTLAND, OR, IID 6098245[/url] I know I want to but is it something I should take serious? I planned on getting an STi as my daily driver and turning my wrx into a project car but 700hp!

that thing is disgusting...in a horrible way

Trevvrx 09-30-2010 10:57 AM

I must say I do agree but it would only be a track car. like I said i want to turn my wrx into a track car or rally car not sure what yet but I know I wanna start racing it. I planned on getting a STi as my DD but damn 700hp already it would save me money alot of money.

You need to start thinking "why is it so cheap?"

Trevvrx 09-30-2010 11:33 AM

I was told the team racing it got a new STi but i know what you mean everything on is perrin well mostly at least so you can see at least half the price is what it would cost in parts.

basco 09-30-2010 11:38 AM

I can guarantee that thing doesn't have 700hp...it just doesn't have enough turbo

RcrsWetDream 09-30-2010 11:51 AM

Yuck....

Trevvrx 09-30-2010 11:55 AM

good point I took a better look at the pictures and noticed its not a rotated mount turbo so it couldn't possibly be big enough to push it to 700hp and I also noticed the exhaust looked tiny. I'm guessing it once was a 700hp beast then they took some of the good parts off. I'm gonna assume it had some huge brembo's and fatty tires cause those stockers just leave way to much room inside those wide fenders. It's also sitting way to high. Man you guys are awsome I knew I needed some sense talked into me. haha thank you for saving from a not so great decision.

do.not.buy.

RcrsWetDream 09-30-2010 12:14 PM

It's def. a rotated setup, but still not worth it.

pzr2874 09-30-2010 12:22 PM

MAYBE 700 to the wheels..... We all know what that equates to....

basco 09-30-2010 12:50 PM

Yeah that's a rotated 30R it just doesn't even have the flow for 700bhp MAYBE 600

Trevvrx 09-30-2010 12:59 PM

yeah i looked at it wrong I kinda spaced the fact that a stock position turbos inlet goes under the intake manifold but I think I found an 05 STi I'm gonna go with haha wish me luck on the financing ohh and btw this one is all stock aside from a drop in filter.

when you talk BHP extrapolations achieved on race gas, it doesn't take many mods to hit eyepopping numbers. You could probably hit 500bhp on a stock STi with the right gas and tuning. Those are just BS numbers though, so who cares.

Meh, doubtful 500bhp is possible on the stock snail even with race gas. That still equates to 400ish to the wheels. No way.
